What's next

What's next to do? As of today these are my mods.

Engine: underdrive pullies, longtubes, BBK throttle body plenum, CAI, bigger mass air piece, MSD coils, comp cams 270's, comp valve springs, bigger injectors, MSD tuned.

Trans: rebuilt with beefed insides, upgraded clutch, new bearings, tri-ax short throw.

Rearend: rebuilt, carbon trak lok clutches, 3.73's, new axles, new seals, bearings and stronger s spring. (Have a fr500 locker diff just haven't installed)

Suspension: Steeda lowering springs 1.5", koni oranges front and rear, front strut bar, mm caster camber plates.

Deletes: EGR, cats, rear seat, dog bone.

I know suspension needs done but what else is there to do other than suspension and nitrous.




04 GT: CAI, 3.73, Longtubes, Full exhaust, FR500 locker diff, Comp Cams 270's, Short throw, Pullies, BBK 73mm TB, MSD coils, 47lb injectors, MPT tuned, Steeda lowering springs, Front strut bar, MM caster camber plates and the list goes on.

That list looks pretty complete, aside from the suspension.

The FR500 used a Torsen style differential. I don't know how you plan on using the car, but a Torsen differential is not ideal for drag racing purposes. The launch can be a little "squirrely" until the differential figures out which wheel needs the most traction. They are also prone to breaking during hard launches.
A Torsen is a "must have" for road courses though.

Well the diff came with the car I just never or installed it so I could sell it.. But suspension is my next big project for sure.

Just didn't know what else engine wise I could do as far as bolt on's or smaller stuff.
